..Forever Finds

The deets: Forever 21 jacket and blouse; Ray-Ban sunnies; MASSI necklace and earrings c/o; GAP jeans; J.Crew boots; Piperlime clutch; OPI "You Don't Know Jacques."

Forever 21 stresses me out BEYOND.  I feel like I am being thrown into a sea of candy colored racks that make no real attempt at being organized in an intuitive way alongside hoards of preteens parent-less in a mall for the first time, battling it out with their friends to see who comes up with the best finds.  Needless to say, I almost never go in. However, one lonely Friday night I happened to see this jacket from the outside of the store and just close enough to the entrance to make me overcome my anxieties and actually walk in to snatch it up.  Sometimes clothes fate brings you and your new jacket together despite all of the odds against you and its wonderful.

P.S. If you love my heart necklace you can enter to win one of five here before the 5th just by liking their Facebook page.

  2. Seriously, I feel your pain with Forever 21–it's so overwhelming in there! But if you can find pieces like this amazing jacket, it's totally worth it. Seriously gorgeous!

  3. I love shopping online at Forever21, but I hate ordering things without trying them on in the store. You can see the debate I face haha BUT if you do go there on the right day at the right time, they do have some great finds like what you bought in this post!

  8. Oh yes, Forever21, delightful & scary all at once. If I come out of there with one good piece & not 27 that I question the very next day, then it was a good trip. Looks like you done good pretty lady!

  14. Beautiful jacket and blouse! Forever 21 is a trip on it's own. If you want to seriously look around, you gotta give yourself at least an hour. Another half hour to try things on and stand in line at a cash. It's crazy.

  15. Your bravery is commendable! The F21 near me recently moved into an old Borders on the other side of the mall, so now it's more spacious, which makes it a little less scary. Everything isn't so crammed together. BUT there is still a ton of crap and a ton of tweens, so...

  16. LOL, F21 can definitely be overwhelming at times, aka all the time. But sometimes its worth it. I find it easier to shop online, but with that said I find their sizes aren't consistent so thats always a risk! I am in love with that tweed jacket. The studs add a little edge to a sophisticated look. xo

  17. I agree about F21, it's so stressful! I pretend like I hate it, but the last time I went in there I came out spending like $70. Haha! I absolutely love that jacket and top! Now I feel like I need to make another F21 visit! Super cute :)

  23. Looove the jacket, looks great with the top! Can't believe its from F21, I thought for sure it was Zara! I get stressed out in that store too. And you're right, there really is no logical system of how the clothes are organized!

  24. I'm usually not big on tweed but I love this jacket! I think it's the studs and the fact that you styled it so well! You look great!

  25. Great F21 find! I love that place for it's look-more-expensive-than-it-really-is pieces but I hear ya...I only go there when I know I can devote an entire afternoon to going through all the racks. But I still can't get over all the giddy teens in there. I always wonder - "Am I too old for this store or are they too young?" It's even worse when my 16 yr old step daughter picks something up that I'm jealous she found first! :-)
